3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle at a søndagssmagning at Absalon Hotel. Good looking with a next to clear, amber body and nice little head tophead. Smell of grapefruits followed by a juicy-like taste profile of pineapples and grapefruits. Rather sharp bitter ending. Medium bodied. Among my favourites of the series (shared with OleR, Skinnyviking and norbrewer, Copenhagen 29.05.2011).

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
All the single hop beers of this series have a weird rubber aspect to them. Also flavours of an unpleasant darker malt. Overwhelms the hops.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a hazy copper with some sediment(looks like hops maybe a touch of yeast), an averaged sized off white head and a lot of lace. Aroma is citrus, sweet tropical fruits, some resin, and a light malty backbone. Flavour is resin, citrus, light pine, medium sessionable bitterness, earthy, fruity, and caramel malt notes.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
The Amarillo is a little more forgiving than the Warrior, but still pretty gross. Sub par, not worth a detailed description.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle at home. This is similar to the Nugget version but slightly more citrussy aromas and astringent in the finish. Again a lovely smooth malty mouthfeel.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Vino Wines. Hazy amber body with a thin off-white head that holds well. Aroma of caramel, lime and faint mango. Flavour of pine, citrus and yeast. Medium body with an oily texture. Soft carbonation. Better than Mikkeller’s Cascade but not quite as intense as their Simcoe.
